This small neighborhood is relatively new and has developed thanks to the recovery of the area where once there were many slaughterhouses and packing plants. Here begins the High Line Park, a 2.3 km elevated linear park created on an old disused railway viaduct.
Places to Visit
The High Line Park starts from this area, for the rest there are no particular Places to Visit. The nightlife is particularly lively.
There is the new home of the prestigious museum of modern art Whitney Museum of American Art, designed by Renzo Piano, and the small Ground Zero Museum Workshop dedicated to the events of September 11, 2001.
Food & shopping
The Chelsea Market, a refined food market with many restaurants and the smaller Gansevoort Market. Then there is an Apple Store and the first Samsung store in New York, Samsung 837.
